As a working artist in the Denver area I am available to teach group or private lessons in painting and/or drawing in the Denver metro area. I have been painting and drawing for all of my life (since able) and have a positive and upbeat attitude. I have many years experience teaching kids and giving private lessons in various subjects to a wide age range including adults.

Although I have only completed a Bachelors in Fine Arts with a focus in Painting and Drawing, I have been a TA at CU Boulder for Advanced Painting course, assisted in 16 weeks of week long courses at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass Village, CO with students ranging from 5 - 85 years and am an instructor through Yong Rembrants after school art classes.

I love working with children but also find teaching adults to be quite enjoyable. I use a building method to teach, starting with breaking down different materials and explaining how to start painting or drawing from life. I have various exercises for the brain to learn how to translate life or photos to a drawn or painted image as well as many levels of readings to help enrich the learning process (if aplicable). I see drawing as a foundational element to art making as well as fine motor skill development and a crucial skill for every artist, because of this I enjoy focusing on strengthening drawing abilities. Though I am quite knowledgable with most drawing materials, acrylic, watercolor, and guache paints, I specialize in oil painting and love to instruct beginner oil painters on the materials and techniques.

I am available to teach children as young as 5 years old to adults of any age. Here are the skills/techniques I prefer to teach per age group.

5-12 years : Drawing in crayon, pencil, colored pencil; painting in acrylic, tempra, watercolor.
13 and up : Drawing with an material including brushes/ink; painting with any material, especially oil, acrylic, watercolor, and guache.

I prefer to instruct private lessons to students any age or teach groups of up to three kids in a semi-private lesson and semi-private lessons for up to two adults.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Art History

After attending Art School at School of the Art Institue of Chicago and University of Colorado at Boulder I have taken numerous art history and theory courses. I stay current by reading various art publications and enjoy reading art history and theory texts along side my artistic practice.

Drawing

I have been drawing since a very young and much of my current work is entirely or includes large areas of representation from life or a photograph. I believe drawing as an essential part of art making for any artist and a crucial part of development of fine motor skills. Drawing can be learned and developed at any age with time spent practicing and exercises in ways of seeing.

Painting

I have been painting for many years and work predominantly in oil with much experience in watercolor, acrylic and guache. I have been a teaching assistant in numerous painting courses at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass Village, CO as well as assisted upper division painting at CU. As my medium of focus, I am most confident in my painting knowledge in materials and techniques and in my ability to instruct painting for any age.
